Benefits for your company
The software Advanced Framework Extension, firmly embedded in Creo Parametric, supplies constructing and design engineers with the required tools to create profile constructions.
The provided library makes it possible to create frame construction consisting of structural steel, aluminum profiles with T-slot or even custom profiles.
Furthermore, features like length and measurements are constantly updated in the Creo Parametric regeneration process.
It is also possible to adapt the software to the specific needs of your corporation with a variety of configuration options and store these in a central location to provide all users with the right settings at all times.
The provided export interfaces allow static calculations with an external software based on *.SDNF or *.DSTV.
You are also able to automatize NC-programming by using the DSTV-NC-interface. This, however, must be purchased separately.
AFX is very easy to use and can automatize many construction tasks. Preview features allow retraceable results.
The completely associative definition of profile corner connections automatically adapts to any design changes.
Extensive libraries for different applications like stairs, ladders and safety cages, but also profiles, connectors and joints, are speeding up your development process.
Have drawings and basic BOM-information automatically created and lower your offcuts by using optimized profile length tables.
Here you will find a selection of current videos that will
bring AFX closer to you.
With the offered features, new profiles can be created, and existing ones can be reused or modified.
Select from library
Select the favored cross section from an extensive list of library components.
Profiles can be placed onto a sketched straight curve, two points or a curved sketch.
Move and rotate the profile to conclude the positioning.
Work with Subassemblies
The provided features allow you to create new profile subassemblies, reuse or modify existing ones.
Use the intelligent AFX copying process to copy only relevant parts of the subassembly.
Place subassemblies onto a straight curve or two points.
Move and rotate the subassemblies to conclude the positioning.
Create joints between profiles and subassemblies
Connecting two profiles
Use the given commands to create any kind of joint between two profiles.
Connecting profiles and other geometries
Use the provided features to create connections between profiles and regular geometry.
Cutting and trimming
Use the advanced joint commands for cutting and trimming of profiles and other AFX components.
The offered features allow to create new components, and reuse or modify existing ones.
Select from library
Select the favored element from a large number of library components.
Use the graphical user interface to define the required references.
Every detail of the selected element can be configurated in the settings tab.
Create the element in an iterative process by adapting the measurements or references and controlling the result by using the preview feature.
Automatically create drawings
All drawings are created at the push of a button. The drawings settings can be adapted to corporation standards.
All relevant BOM parameters can be completely adapted. All measurements like height and width are automatically updated by the software.
Custom item numbers
Use custom item numbers for your project to identify geometrically identical models for your overall project, and to lower BOM positions.
